“Katie, what do you want?”
I didn’t need to think about it. I had the text book answer ready to shoot straight back.
“Intelligent, caring, inspirational, honorable, trustworthy, loving, spiritual, gorgeous ….!”
Then I waited for the typical sarcastic response that I have become used to -“You don’t want much, do you!”
Instead he said, “Is that all?”
I sat back in shock and waited eagerly for what was coming next…..
“Don’t you want a spark? Something that burns forever? Electricity!”
Well, hell yeah! Of-course!
As I sit here on my Greek Island sun-bed, pondering that conversation, the infamous quote from ‘A Course in Miracles’ comes to mind
“It’s not that we ask for too much. It’s that we ask for too little”
And as I continue to reflect on the conversation (trying desperately not to be distracted by the bulging Speedos sprawled in front of me…..honestly….when will they be banned!!??!!) not only am I acutely aware that at the top of my list of Daring Desires is a lasting intimate relationship that indeed has an inextinguishable spark, but even more than that, that all of my LIFE must be electric. That’s a non-negotiable for me.
We are Spirit and as such, we are an energetic presence that cannot be extinguished. Ever.
We are light.
Our choice is to shine bright or allow our Spirit to be dimmed.
